of the full fare ticket. and per the bart board fare policy which has been in place over 10 years at this point, the bart board regularly increases fares every two years at a rate consistent with cpi less half a percent for productivity improvements. with this fare policy in place over the last decade, there has been -- there have been occasions when the fare has actually increased faster than the rate of inflation. for example, as identified by the budget and legislative analyst in 2011, fares from 2006 to 2011 increased at a cumulative 40% rate or 7% annualized rate. the contract for the fast pass is currently at current reimbursement rate is worth $7.9 million. and for the proposed rate increase, it would be $9.2 million. >> so, quick question for you. why are we allowing this rate to increase like this? >> well, so, so this dollar.19 was based on having that fixed discount of 32%. the bart fare went from $1.50 to $1.75. based on this particular agreement, we would go up consistent with that. and from there on out it would be based on cpi. >> so, i understand that comment. to m

we wait for the bart board of directors to put in place a fair policy similar to the one we have at the sfmta which kind of sets -- which guides future fare increases. so, it was only for that reason that we kept this agreement short at this period of time. our understanding is that our staff is bringing to the bart board for consideration such a policy if that is accepted, and adopted by the bart board. it would be our intent to go back and negotiate an extension out to this, the same 2020 time period as we have with the feeder agreement. if we are able to do that, then we would need to negotiate -- bart would want to and i think would be reasonable to negotiate a higher cap. but that said, we accept the recommendations of the budget analyst. i know there are some questions and we'd be happy, both my staff and bart staff are here. i think the budget analyst report was comprehensive. i think we briefed all the members of the committee. so, at this point if you want, can bring staff up to walk through the details or we can just open it up for your questions and budget analyst repo

wanted to wait and see what the bart board fare policy would be. my understanding from bart's staff, conversation, is they are proposing a fare policy that's similar to what or consistent with what's currently there today. so, that was the idea behind having it expire in 2014. >> so, what would happen if we equalized both contracts to 2014 or 2020, what's in our best interest as the mta or the city? >> certainly that's possible to equalize the contracts there. i'm not going to opine on whether -- what's best for the city or not. i think maybe that's a more appropriate question for mr. rifkin on that. but certainly it's useful. >> well, right now doing it to 2014 so we can have better future negotiating leverage? >> i think the idea behind 2014 is just so we understand what parts fare policy is. staff has proposed a similar fare policy as in place today. but nothing has been adopted at this point so we don't know with certainty what that fare policy would be. >> okay. >> okay. so, -- >> excuse me, supervisor avalos. >> thank you, chair farrell. we had the fast pass agreement before u
